Job Search Spotlight: How Jesse Bennett, MIA '21 Landed a New Role

Recent MIA graduate, Jesse Bennett, talks about her current position at the New York Immigration Coalition and her job search experience.

What is your new job? How did you obtain it?
I am currently the Senior Operations Associate at New York Immigration Coalition. I obtained the job after applying after I saw the posting on their website back in April 2021.

How long were you actively job seeking? I was actively job searching for around 6 months before I got the job offer at NYIC. This included applying to around 8-10 jobs every week (and honestly rarely hearing back from 75% of them).
